In the past, the fundraiser has generated some $250,000 for other UBC Okangaan programs, the cancer centre in Kelowna and to help pay for a special room at the new hospice house.

“This is an amazing event and well supported by the community” said event organizer Mohinni Singh, who is a Kelowna city councillor.

“Collectively we are all making a difference locally and globally.”
